I was recently diagnosed as hypothyroid and have been on levo 50 mcg for about 6 weeks. Was retested end of last week and levels are back in range but not optimal yet (doing a separate post about this!). My question is that although I am definitely feeling much better, I am less tired, my skin crawling has almost gone away, my skin is less dry and eczema more manageable, in the last week I have developed a swollen left ankle.
It started as a round swelling behind my ankle bone on the inside and then moved to a spot on the inside of my foot. It has now moved up and is on the lower part of my leg. It doesn't hurt but is uncomfortable and am very concerned it is going to get worse. It feels swollen but is soft to the touch and isn't red or discoloured. Could this be a hypothyroid symptom?
I also have low in range ferritin (27 when last tested), it was very low, and have been struggling to get the level up and maintain it).
I have also had a slightly elevated APTT test recently (clotting time) and globulins (liver function) which consultant wants to repeat.
